Alejandro Escovedo Live at Aquarelle Restaurant on 2008-03-02




Alejandro Escovedo with Stephen Bruton
Outdoor Terrace
Aquarelle Restaurant
Austin, TX
March 2, 2008

A very special cancer benefit for Ms. Christie Constante, one of the teachers at
Esqualita Del Alma, a bilingual elementary school that was at the time of this
recording located in downtown Austin. Stephen Bruton, who was undergoing
treatment for cancer himself, very much wanted to be a part of this special fund
raising show. As it turned out this would be the final time that Alejandro and
Stephen would play together. Bruton produced Alejandro's first three albums.
The quality of both the performance and the recording is stunning, Bruton's
playing added a very special texture to the show, as in the version on
"Everybody Loves Me", which is one of the best, snakiest versions ever
performed. This all acoustic show is special in many, many ways and it's a
pleasure to share it with music lovers everywhere. This is "Austin Love" at
it's best.

This is a really great recording. Although there is a lot of clipping, especially at the end, but it still sounds great. The high frequencies are preserved well and the instruments are well separated on the stereo channels.

Escovedos voice is really powerful. I like that style!

Great performance, great recording.

My copy of this recording shows the date as 8/2/08 instead of 3/2/08. Anyone certain of the date?
